CAT POWER (Photoset)
Cat Power, at the Modern Sky Festival.
Thinkpad Space, Beijing.
Cat Power’s music is very dear to me.
Its fierce frailty, so powerfully fragile and softly brutal in its rawness are something that got me hooked ever since I heard it for the first time…
That was 17 years ago, with the album “What would the community think?”.
And now, 17 years later, I finally got the chance to catch one of her shows.
I am double the age I was then and Chan Marshall put on a few years as well but the emotion was intact. Her voice is absolutely stunning and she even played one of my favourite songs: Werewolf.
The fact that I got a chance to get in and be in the photo pit made me feel kind of strange.
Was that finally the reward for all this energy spent these two last years, sacrificing everything to shoot my way out of the rabbithole?
